Mississauga, Ont., September 10, 2019 – Rabba Fine Foods, the GTA’s neighbourhood market, held its 24th annual golf tournament this Monday, September 9, at the Brampton Golf Club. At the event, which attracted close to 200 partners from the grocery industry and the community, Jack Rabba presented a cheque of $15,000 to Meghan Nicholls, executive director of the Mississauga Food Bank.
“Throughout the years, we have been fortunate enough to achieve success in the grocery business,” says Jack Rabba, founder of Rabba Fine Foods. “We’re grateful to be able to strike partnerships with local partners like The Mississauga Food Bank. Their work is incredibly important and truly benefits us all. Their efforts really create an impact in communities throughout the region. We could not be more pleased with our partnership.”
Rabba first started supporting the Mississauga Food Bank back in 2014 through its milk fund, where the company would supply the organization with a truck load of milk purchased below market cost. The milk purchased through the partnership help The Mississauga Food Bank in its mission to relieve hunger in Mississauga by providing and promoting access to healthy food for people in need.
“Rabba continues to play an important role in our daily lives,” says Nicholls. “As a strong community member that is intrinsically connected to various neighbourhoods across the city, few know the importance of providing food for those in need better than Rabba Fine Foods. We’re honoured to continue to work with Jack and his team. With valued partners like Rabba, we can continue to provide fresh and nutritious food to community residents in need.”
Over the years, Rabba Fine Foods have contributed close to $250,000 for The Mississauga Food Bank.
